Fruita voters vote down retail marijuana

Perhaps not surprisingly, Fruita voters decided Tuesday to not allow the recreational sale of marijuana within city limits.

Initial results show voters cast 2,149 ballots against inviting recreational pot shops to apply in the city. That was far more than the 1,217 votes Fruita citizens cast in favor of retail marijuana in their midst.

A related measure, to impose a five percent local sales tax on the potential sale of retail marijuana, actually passed, by an initial tally of 1,913 for and 1,425 against the measure.
